I need to make a few more men's cards before my sale next Saturday, so I'm glad of any inspiration I can get from challenges to help me get on with them.

This card is for Cards for men 5 sketch:

The cricketer is a stamped image from the Papermania nostalgia pastimes set designed by John Byars. This was coloured with copics, although not much colouring was required. All papers were from my offcus box, so another opportunity to play on the swings in Pixie's crafty snippets 11 playground, Hiding in my craftroom 37: super scraps Saturday and Crafty calendar March: spring clean; 'spring cleaning' is also the theme for Just some lines - to use at least two items that are at least six months old - not only all the offcuts are old, but the stamp set is well over six months old (and I confess that until now un-inked!)

This is also for:
